    PRESS ON PREVIOUS WORK:
    ‘Bor Can See Ghosts is a very nice mix between a horror book with the exciting, mysterious elements of a treasure hunt and lots of deadly funny jokes. The book is practically dripping with macabre humour, and this blends very well with the mood of the story.’ – Coolesuggesties.nl 

    ‘A funny-creepy ghost story full of puns, featuring a father who pours scorn on his son’s interest in ghosts and stubbornly insists that ghosts are only found fairy tales, while the people in the paintings behind him wink and stick out their tongues.’ – Lezenisleuk.nl
